Stunning psychologial thriller
3 June 2002 | by sdxSee all my reviews

The plot starts with an autistic mothers tragic death. Soon after, her son is discovered nearby, covered in his mothers blood, and with a heavy object in his hand... This is the beginning of the almost over-obvious murder case that is assigned to Martin Beck and his crew. However, Martins intuition soon leads him to believe that there is more than just the obvious to this case.

If you have watched the other BECK movies, you will notice that this is not the usual action packed BECK movie. However, the plot is more unexpected than the previous ones, and has more of a psychologial tone than usual. Don't get me wrong - this is good, it gives the viewer a deeper insight to most of the characters, and keeps one thinking all the time.

If you like psychological thrillers, and the beck movies, this movie is a must! I find it slightly better than the other beck movies, who are too predictable and boring at times. But Gunvalds way of being makes every BECK movie worth watching, that's for sure :-)
